Those cards are ok.....

Nope! They are totally awesome.

Also the art on the Emperors objective is awesome.

A 6 combat icon Emperor Palpatine in an objective with a better Wolfman type unit? Pretty powerful.

So we're getting a new Palp in the Endor cycle and another in GA? Seems like we'll finally see Sith decks with different cores.

 

These cards look fantastic.

Wooow. So much exciting stuff!

 

First off, the art is great on so many of the cards. Emp, Mon Mothma, Alliance X-Wing!

 

Rebels confirmed, with Kanan and the Inquisitor on cards--though I guess we all saw that coming. Cool!

 

Support for Rebel Characters! The new Mon Mothma is awesome, and her text really screams "leadership." Her set is a hidden resource engine as well; with the enhancement on herself, she turns into a super-Motti. I like the mechanic referencing Oset numbers on both the enhancement and the search. Kyle = awesome. The search card is cool, with Kyle from this set, Twist in Leia's, and whatever comes with the new Ackbar.

 

New emp and his obj: Finally, the DS gets a real bonus for winning the Force! Been waiting for this since Echoes, and wow, what powerful bonuses they are!

 

Vader's Chamber--how nuts is this in Sith? Hunted is excellent as well, basically turning damage into tactics. 

 

Kanan's Concentration makes me sad. Why are Jedi getting a zero-cost remove focus event?

 

Cutsey: Hidden Grove--basically Smuggler's Handbook, but better.

 

Love the look of the Zuckuss 4-Lom pair. I like their original set, but I'm happy to see them back. Looks like they'll continue Scum themes of edge manipulation, and Droids. 

 

Ok, got all that off my chest. Let the hype train roll!

Super sweet stuff all across the board!

 

@brimmstorm - I think the art on everything in this spoiler is awesome!

 

By the way, they've changed the pod numbering scheme - the DS pods are first in the numbering order. I don't remember seeing that before.

It's deploy only, so I don't think that's a big deal.

It says first quarter 2016 for a release "date." That's insane.

My main takeaway here, a new Sith Vader, with a resource finally! It will be interesting to see if there is a new 'core' Sith created from this box.

The Rebel stuff seems cool. But most of all, let them get Protect, let them get Protect, let them get Protect, let them get Protect, let them get Protect....

I second Mr. Pants on the art.  I particularly love the boozing Zuckuss and pretty Grove.

 

The Emperor's set is really interesting.  Neat alternative to the Core version.  Cool contrast in that the new Guard doesn't have protect.  The event is nice, but is a little redundant considering the objective ability.

 

I like the Mon Mothma set, too.  Man, I am really looking forward to fun Rebel Character options.  I want to compare the decktype with Smuggler characters.

 

Awesome edge stuff with Scum again.  Edge two?  Yikes.

 

That junk dealer is cool.  Great combos with BtS Luke.

 

Also aaaaaaa Meditation Chamber

So I looked up the Terentatek because I'm ignorant. Turns out those are Sithspawn, so more support for that theme, yay!

I wouldn't believe that even if I was paid. Will probably be released the second quarter, and that's awesome anyway.

I don't believe in that date, but I don't know that I care since I'm pretty pumped for the Endor releases too. No need to rush the cycle. I still haven't gotten around to playing an Endor Han deck, but that's mainly because I got distracted by Iggy B.

I think what I'm most excited about from this announcement is that I feel confident that we will get an Ahsoka Tano card sometime soon. The previewed cards are great of course, but Ahsoka Lives!

Doesn't look like the cycle will be rushed, just released in a timely manner. But because we're accustomed to delays, we get the impression its being rushed :P

 

In any case...

2nd pack - January

3rd pack - February

4th pack - March

5th pack - April

6th pack - May

GA - June/July?

Sooooo, the meta is about to shift dramatically. We may see the first sith deck ever to get to the top 16 of worlds or gencon to not have core Palp.

Also, Mon Mothma looks borderline broken. I do love the new Kyle Katarn though. He is coated almost perfectly given what else is in the set and the card pool overall right now.

Summertime release would be cool.  We could get a start on another new cycle in the fall.

I am looking forward to Mon Mothma-Leia and Mon Mothma-MC80 combos. I wonder if we'll see a new leader Leia in the box?
